. i am talking about it saying i think it's good for this country. ruth is in sandy hook connecticut. >> good morning, bill. i am calling to say, please keep feeling guilty. >> why? >> because this adorable company does things to make sure that they don't pay taxes in the u.s. there is a thing called -- this was in "the new york times." it's double-dutch sandwich which reduces taxes by routing profits through irish subsidarbs like they are in i think arizona, even when they do things in california they manage to ship a part somewhere else. so they are one of the worst, even worse than wal-mart in terms of what they might have contributed to to. i take it that $24,000,000,000. >> they are avoiding in taxes . >> one little tiny thing, they have had the opportunity over the courses of the years to do things in a much safer way when they manufacture in china and all over the place. >> no. there have been stories about the working conditions in china which is another reason i am glad these jobs are coming here. ruth ruth, you make a good point.
can't think of anything that has scarred the soul of americans than what happened at sandy hook. you have had complete utter silence from republican leaders. on some of these key issues. and so there are americans out there that are thinking okay, wait a second. is this the party of lower taxes, or is this the party of assault weapons and high-capacity magazine clips? is this the party of balanced budgets, or is this the party of contraception wars going back to the primary process? this party has painted itself into an extreme corner by going down all these various rabbit trails that have nothing to do with our core of who we are as a party of small government. and again, i want to just put these numbers up one more time. the cnn numbers that come out, again, on the eve of this disastrous plan "b" vote. i can't think of any time the republican party, my republican party's, been in such disarray since 1974 after richard nixon resigned. what does it all mean? >> well, look. first on the boehner plan "b," i think the conventional wisdom in both parties both before and after they had to

is simple, the impact of hurricane sandy. but 146,000 jobs were added and the unemployment rate ticked down to 7.7%. but stalled negotiations in washington have a lot of employers and taxpayers still concerned about what's to come. joining me now is jim, economics correspondence for "economic journal." jim, good morning. >> good morning to you. >> these numbers are much better than the early estimates. what's behind them? >> well, they are better than we thought they would be because it doesn't have any impact of hurricane sandy. there wasn't a big displacement of people looking for work. now, let's get a couple of things down here, though, to start with. there are still 12 million unemployed americans. the unemployment rate fell for reasons that we don't like very much. people leaving the labor force. this is a better report than we expected it to be but still not a great report. >> now the question is, what goes on with the fiscal cliff? could the number get any better? >> i think that is the hope on wall street and republicans that have been talk ug for years and of the business communit

, in the wake of the sandy hook school tragedy, a new plan from the controversial sheriff in arizona. he wants armed volunteers to patrol the schools there. we'll get into that debate. >>> then, we'll share with you a romance story 20 years in the making. it began with a simple love letter in elementary school. >>> plus, did you get the gift for the holidays that, well, just wasn't you? a record number of returns are expected this year. but did you ever wonder what happens next? we'll take you inside a warehouse where many of these items go and actually wind up getting resold at some pretty deep discounts. >> i like the sound of that, deep discount. we'll go shopping, too. >>> we begin this morning with the stormy weather blanketing parts of the northeast. dylan dryer has the latest. >>> yes flar, this time it looke southern new england will get the brunt of it. you see the warnings and advisories posted all across the northeast. basically stretching right down into ohio. and into parts of even northeastern kentucky. it's in southern new england from boston back into rhode island where we will
their american citizenship so they do not have to pay any taxes in america. as far as these kids in sandy, my oldest daughter told me we are going to see lots more of these things unless kids are given a better future to hope for rather than being some rich person's slave. host: thank you for the call. guest: you are right. the rich, no matter what the tax level, they have a way of getting around their taxes. that goes back to the point i was saying. it is not about what level of rate we put taxes on individuals. we have to reduce spending them big she said obama has given in to republicans paying bank i am not sure what he has given in on. he has not been at the table and then he has been traveling all over the country promoting raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires and then doing their fair share. spending is causing this problem. spending levels and the debt is what is creating this poor economy and the recovery we have seen. obama's failed policies have created such a soft economy today. we have to start dealing with the spending the event we have to treat the problem. that is th

jersey and new york, the communities affected by hurricane sandy. the house is reportedly looking at a plan that would only provide about $27 billion in aid. that's less than half of what the senate passed over the weekend. they went for the $60 billion aid package and certainly things to get done. remember, new year's eve obviously the fiscal cliff deadli deadline. thursday at noon the deadline for the current congress and then they won't have to restart the clock on pending legislation. >> so i know -- >> i'm glad you mentioned that. let's look bigger picture. this is set to be the least productive congress in history. 219 bills in this congress. >> right. >> the next lowest level was 333 bills during the '90s. so tremendously unproductive congress. as you mentioned, the new one will be sworn in and not looking a whole lot different. is this the new normal, the do-nothing congress? >> i think until we can sort of clear out of these fiscal issues, whether that's tonight or tomorrow, whether that's mid march, it is very difficult for other issues to rise to the to because of the n
headlines. sandy's impact. buyers are back. and a big bake sale. joining me now forbes staff writer morgan brennan. let's get to hurricane sandy which took a toll of on consumer spending. "consumer reports" says spending fell in october after rising in september. the gdp was higher than estimated. i never can quite figure out how they can both be true and whether or not this continues in coming months. >> that's a great question. i think we need to start with the revised number for the third quarter. the reason we saw gdp growth in the third quarter was because businesses were restocking their inventory. an government spending increased about 9.5%. not sustainable indicators of economic growth in the long term. consumer spending makes up about 70% of economic growth. the fact we saw that come down in october and actually the fact in november the early numbers despite a robust holiday shopping weekend are still not looking so good is why we're seeing economists predict a weak fourth quarter economic number. and we're actually seeing numbers as low as 1% which would be really terrible. >> no

a little problem because of what happened with hurricane sandy. but we will still have about 100,000 new jobs. we are approaching about 4 million jobs now that have been created. that does not merely make up for what was lost during the bush years, but we are making progress. people in america realize we cannot have a top-down economy that the republicans so glove during the bush years and they wanted to create begin with governor romney. mr. president, i would be happy to take -- and they want to have again beginning with governor romney. mr. president, i would be happy to take a look at the proposal. if that is what they want to do, i would be happy to seriously take a look at that and report to the white house and my caucus. but until then, i object. -- r. president >> that has been heard. >> the majority leader says that the republicans do not know who the quarterback is which is common when you do not have the president. but on the democratic side, you know who the quarterback is and he is throwing interceptions. we're moving backward and backward and backward toward the goal line f
